IFLI is looking for two enthusiastic people to join the team here at RSPB Skinflats Nature Reserve, near Grangemouth.
We are looking for one person with creativity and a passion for engaging people in their natural and historic environment to join the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI) team for a unique 18 month opportunity to gain skills and experience in event organisation, interpretation and community outreach, as our Events and Outreach Assistant.
For the second vacancy, as the Inner Forth Futurescape Project Assistant, we are looking to recruit a passionate and committed individual who can inspire local people about the amazing wildlife of the Inner Forth, and who is also eager to learn new skills to progress their career in conservation.
These posts are part of our IFLI Training Tomorrow’s Talent project. So far we have employed 12 people, both directly through IFLI and through partner organisations. We are proud to say that a number of them have now gone on to find other jobs partly as a result of their time with us.
As a trainee, you will have access to a range of training and development opportunities. If you would like to find out more detailed information, and download an application pack, follow the link for the Events and Outreach Assistant and the Inner Forth Futurescape Project Assistant.

Work has just started on two new access improvement projects in Clackmannanshire, which will help people get closer to the wildlife and wild places on their doorstep. Local people and visitors to Cambus and Black Devon Wetlands are set to benefit from an investment of £116,000 through IFLI to improve path network links. The projects are a partnership between Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT), Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI) and Clackmannanshire Council, and are both due for completion in the spring
The Cambus Whisky & Wetland Wanders project will upgrade the existing path network around Cambus which links the eclectic mix of wild and industrial landscape and connects local people to the Forth estuary. The scheme will create over a kilometre of new paths, as well as new linking sections created where required. New seating and signage will also be installed.
The second project – Walk to the Wetlands - will take advantage of the fantastic wildlife resource on the doorstep of local people in the area around Black Devon Wetlands between Alloa and Clackmannan. The work aims to provide a comprehensive path network to access the Inner Forth landscape, and will also link with the new RSPB Black Devon Wetlands Nature Reserve. A kilometre of new paths are being installed, and a further 500 metres will be upgraded. Signage and waymarking will help people discover the new routes.
To find out more about these two projects visit our website project pages at Walk to the Wetlands and Cambus Whisky and Wetland Wander.
